We boarded the Voyager of the Seas on Friday and Saturday stopped at our first port which was Cartagena, Spain.

And of course our food fest continued with our walking tour. It began, however, with a visit to the Roman ruins which were first uncovered in 1989 during an excavation in the area. They calculated this was actually a Roman theater built around 3 BC

While walking through the streets of Cartagena we stopped at three local cafes to enjoy a variety of tapas. The first were three cod fritters, the second was fried brie on a popsicle stick and the final one was a pretzel topped with potato salad and an anchovy. I tried Sangria at two of the three stops but non were as tasty as the ones from the LeMeridien in Barcelona.
